Given the smash hit success of Halloween, we wouldn’t be surprised to see other horror franchises revived with a similar “sequel to the original” approach, and it’s always possible that A Nightmare on Elm Street could be one of those franchises. Recently, Robert Englund teased that he may have one more left in him, and Heather Langenkamp now says the same!
Chatting with EW, Langenkamp expressed that she’d love to reprise the role.
“I’m sitting here like any other scream queen in Hollywood, hoping that they revive their franchise,” Langenkamp told the site. “I’m not alone! I know of lots of other horror heroines who have this little bit of spring in their step thinking about the chance of perhaps being in [new versions of] the movies that they helped make famous as young people.”
“It’s kind of crazy, but it’s definitely something I would love to do,” she added.
At this time, however, Langekamp made sure to note that nothing is in motion.
“I haven’t [heard anything about a new film],” she says. “I certainly keep up with friends at New Line Cinema, and so I would expect if Warner Bros. or New Line Cinema — whoever — would put something like that together, I would imagine that I would know. So, the fact that I don’t know leads me to believe that it’s probably not in the works.”
